For the opening sketch during the Feb. 9 episode of "Saturday Night Live," the late-night comedy show took the opportunity to mock the Super Bowl power outage, which delayed the big game last weekend for over a half hour.
The "SNL" regulars were skewering the NFL broadcasters, who had to vamp for a pretty long time during the blackout. There wasn't much to discuss and there were only so many times they could throw to commercial.
If that had actually happened during the real broadcast, that would have been amazing. But we aren't sure this sketch has anything on the funny tweets happening during the actual blackout. »
